Ghost of Sparta takes place between God of War 1 & 2, without giving much away with the story it explains gaps of Kratos's life just like Chains of Olympus did. The addition to a few new characters was great and the new abilities you have are pretty much just additional buttons and items you may not use. I found using the fire blades upgrade you receive from the titan in the beginning could destroy just about all the enemies. The game took me about 6 hrs. to complete which was fine for me. The ending was one of the best ive seen in a game just like all the other GoW endings.
The only thing keeping this from receiving 10 was the repetition of enemies. Not really any epic battles except for the end which was just the same cut seen over and over again.
I say if you don't have a PsP and are a fan and have played the others, borrow someones and play the ones for the PsP.

When i rented this, i was expecting something similar to the previous God of War game on the PSP, Chains of Olympus, which sadly, sucked badly. But to say the least, Ghost of Sparta pwned the you know what out of every PSP game ever made! Here's my overall review for Kratos's newest bloodtrail:

Storyline: Never have i played a mythology-based videogame with so much depth and Ghost of Sparta only adds to it. Even though Ghost of Sparta throws us back to the time when Kratos was only getting used to his new powers (between God of War I and II), this game still surprises me. I can't spoil too much, but i have to say, you'll learn a lot about Kratos and his origins that supplement the gore-driven action of the other games.

Gameplay/Combat: Kratos stays fresh and doesn't let a single bit of his insane war tactics go away. Where a lack of good strategy fails, raw gore and insane killing methods make up for. Trust me, Kratos will never leave his brutal methods, ever...

Sound/Graphics: Although its a PSP game, the graphics and sound are surprinsgly crisp and manage to surprise me. Pretty good for a PSP game, i have to say.

Conclusion: Kratos's personal war against the forces of mythology continue, but set us back a year or two to show us why he is who he is. Hardcore God of War fans will not be let down, and will be very happy to see Kratos in our hands once again!

The phrase, "Don't fix it if it's not broken" comes to mind when playing this game. The God of War formula has been fantastic for every game they've made, and this is no exception. This game grabbed me and wouldn't let me put her down until I'd finished. This is without a doubt the best graphical game on the PSP! I'm hard pressed to find anything to criticize about this game. I guess it's a 'tad' on the short side (took me about 6 hours to complete), however every minute of this game is so great that you wont even care. If you have a PSP or are a fan of the God of War series then do yourself a favor and pick up this gem you wont regret it.
